Next-Gen BMW i8 Will Focus Completly On EV

By  | 

The current BMW i8 looks pretty amazing. The futuristic-looking model was offered with a plug-in hybrid engine as well as an EV engine option but it looks like BMW is looking to focus only on electric when it comes to the next-gen BMW i8.

The current model is powered by a 1.5-liter turbocharged three-cylinder engine that is mated to an electric motor but the next BMW i8 could be an all-electric model.

if this is true, the vehicle should be coming in with an all-wheel-drive system similar to the one fitted on the iNext. Some report suggests that the next model will also get the solid-state batteries but it looks like it might not be ready in time for the BMW i8 release.

Of course, for all we know, BMW could still keep the hybrid option when they release the next BMW i8. Hopefully, more details will come our way soon.
